  1. 2012 All-Star Game: First inning

    Rob Neyer

    Admit it: You didn't predict Melky Cabrera would be starting and batting second in the All-Star Game, did you? And he hits a soft one-out single to left field! That's the last time I make a crack about Melky. Joe Buck just recited a story about Al...

  2. All-time draft roster: NL East

    Rob Neyer

    Let's move on to the National League with our all-time draft rosters, the best players drafted and signed by each franchise. Remember that they didn't necessarily have to star with that team. Other divisions: AL East | AL Central | AL West Atla...

  3. Change will roll into the Hall, someday

    Rob Neyer

    Yesterday, Jim Caple wrote a perfectly cogent, clear-eyed look at the Hall of Fame electorate's tortured take on drugs. In the wake of yesterday's BBWAA Hall of Fame voting results, a number of other cogent and clear-eyed pieces have been written ...

  4. Will Barry Larkin save the Hall in 2012?

    Rob Neyer

    This will be a good year for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Oh, it won't be a great year. Not a year like 1999, when first-ballot enshrinees Nolan Ryan, George Brett, and Robin Yount packed the house. Not a year like 2014, when Ups...

  5. Only the Nats can limit Strasburg

    Rob Neyer

    Like the rest of us, Murray Chass wants to see as much of Stephen Strasburg as possible. But with Nationals president Stan Kasten suggesting that Strasburg will throw only 100-110 innings in the majors this season, we're probably not going to see him...

  6. Phillies' Happ both lucky and awesome

    Rob Neyer

    Let's set the record straight, shall we? David Murphy: After a postseason in which he made just one start and six relief appearances, and an offseason in which he listened to various "experts" attribute much of his success to luck, the 27-year-old ...

  7. If Big Hurt wasn't 'clean,' who was?

    Rob Neyer

    At the end of nearly 2,100 words, Joe Posnanski makes a great point about Frank Thomas and the Hall of Fame. Joe's Big Finish: We all understand that the Hall of Fame voters, as a group, have little sympathy or respect for steroid users. McGwire's...

  8. Looking into Hall's crystal ball

    Rob Neyer

    I wrote most of this before the results were announced, and had to throw out a good chunk when just Andre Dawson was actually elected. It's better this way, though. Or more interesting, anyway. With Dawson safe in Cooperstown, we can start thinkin...

  9. Rob Neyer: Selecting the top 100 players of the decade

    Rob Neyer

    Albert Pujols and Alex Rodriguez were the clear-cut first two choices for the top 100 players of the decade; after that, the list got a little more difficult.

  10. Buehrle reminds us (again) that he's good

    Rob Neyer

    Well, Mark Buehrle has thrown two more no-hitters than Roger Clemens, Greg Maddux, and Tom Glavine. Combined. Does that mean Buehrle's a Hall of Famer someday, too? Hardly. Unless you're Nolan Ryan, Hall of Fame voters pay little attention ...

  12. Will Glavine pitch in 2009?

    Rob Neyer

    Have we seen the last of Tom Glavine? Looks like we probably have. From MLB Rumors: Breaking news out of Atlanta: Tom Glavine told Buck Lanford of Fox 5 Atlanta that he won't pitch in 2009. "I'm not going to pitch or do anything in ba...

  13. Pettitte chasing 300?

    Rob Neyer

    Are we sure that Andy Pettitte won't win 300 games? Yes, the odds are against him. But let's work through the math. Pettite picked up his sixth victory of the season tonight. He's averaged 15 wins per season over the last four seasons...

  14. Does Glavine have legit beef?

    Rob Neyer

    Tom Glavine is miffed. I don't blame him. All that hard work, only to be released by his longtime employers? But this -- via Ken Rosenthal -- is pretty silly: Pitcher Tom Glavine is considering filing a grievance against the Atlanta Braves ove...
